    I have two 10 week old Brahmas (one Gold Brahma, one Gold X Dark Brahma) which I am planning to give away. I just wanted to make sure that I am not giving away pullets!
    The first 3 pics. are of the Gold with a pullet of the same age to compare with, the last two are of the Gold X Dark (a particularly huge chick!)
    Opinions would be much appreciated.

    I thought so, but the second one had more rounded neck feathers than I'd seen before. Just as well as I have promised to give them away and would have been sorry to give away pullets,

    I believe they are both cockerels.
